Beach weddings can be a tricky occasion to dress for. You may be on the beach for the ceremony and the reception or for just one or the other. Most of the time these affairs are pretty casual, too. Also, think about the locations of the ceremony and the reception to figure out a plan of attack for your shoe game. This may call for two pairs of shoes! Here is the most casual option for a relaxed wedding.

Little Black Dress

Sleeveless A-line Knee-length Dress With Pleats

It’s always beneficial to have a LBD in our closet. This could work for any kind of wedding. It’s fun and flirty and comes in tons of colors to pick from, too. I love the two buttons on the waistband in the back. I can just see this dress paired with pearl earrings a pearl necklace and hair in a topknot. Can you say Holly Golightly? Black pumps or even a splash of color with red pumps will make this look unforgettable.
